QUẢNG NINH — Police from the north-eastern province of Quảng Ninh destroyed over 3.5 tonnes of frozen fish without clear origins on Thursday.
Previously, the police seized the rabbit fish (Siganus guttatus) and white pomfret (Pampus argenteus) from a truck bearing registration number 14C-171.35 while the vehicle was travelling on National Highway No 18A, running through Cẩm Đông Ward, on Tuesday.
Ngô Thanh Minh, 36, the truck driver, failed to present legal documents to prove the origins of the fish.
Minh admitted to the police that he was hired to transport the fish from Quảng Ninh Province to Thái Bình Province for consumption.
